Drumline got first place at Independence on Feb. 23. They have the whole routine done for the competition performance. The theme is Tesla’s Tower. Nicholas Castillo is acting as Nikola Tesla, while Beau Gongora is acting as J.P. Morgan. The drumline tells the story of how Nikola Tesla wanted to have free energy for everyone to use. But J.P. Morgan wouldn’t give Nikola the money to continue building the Wardenclyffe tower, or the tower that provided everyone with free energy.

They compete locally and in Los Angeles this season.
